Yoga – Truly a Transformative Practice For Mind, Body and Soul

In today’s speedy world, where humanity is chasing success and glory,  what often sadly gets neglected is our physical and mental health. From ages eight to eighty, to a lessor or larger extent, we all fall into the trap of unhealthy lifestyle choices such as insufficient sleep, not sleeping at the correct time, eating excessive high sugar foods, ignoring health building fruits and vegetables, insufficiently using the physical body, falling prey to stress and anxiety. In this scenario, one cannot underestimate the significance of yoga showing us the right path  and pulling us up to a higher and healthier way of interacting with life.

According to WHO, Daily Yoga Practices not only produce immediate psychological benefits but also help reduce the chances of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, cances etc.

Yoga is a joy when done right. So I suggest, overcome the urge for the DIY approach, join  Online Yoga Virtual Classes led by professional instructors, and from the comfort of your home keep health issues at bay.

Yoga: A Means To Strengthen The Connection Between Body and Mind.

Undoubtedly the origin of yoga can be traced back to India, but this ancient art of holistic well-being has now spread it’s roots globally. From the eternal teachings of the Adiyogi to spiritual awakenings experienced by many great yogis throughout different eras, yoga involves resurrecting the energy of our chakras. It includes a range of physical exercises or asanas and breathing exercises or pranayama that promote holistic health through strengthening the nadis, (subtle nerves) and learning to work with prana (life force). Regular Online Yoga Sessions can work miraculously to improve one’s overall well-being, foster better physical and psychological health and awaken our spiritual self. All the yogic practices weave together our mind, body and soul. Here are some prominent yoga styles which have evolved and which help us grow as physical, mental as well as spiritual beings.

  • Hatha Yoga: Perfect for beginners, Hatha Yoga involves yoga poses and breathing exercises that are simple yet effective. This form of yoga requires consistency and steady effort so as to be able to comprehend the varied postures, understand correct alignment and execution of the asanas. This form of yoga allows newcomers to gradually build on their stamina and performance. The mind also becomes more steady as it learns to concentrate on the precise execution of postures and breathing practices.


  • Vinyasa Yoga: As one  advances in one’s yoga practice, one might opt for Vinyasa Yoga Classes. A quick-paced yoga form involving constant rhythmic movement, it is the most preferred choice of runners and athletes. This dynamic yoga helps one learn to connect one’s breath and movement in a dance-like way, providing stretching, balancing and movement, which then leads to release of stress and improved circulation and energy flow.


  • Ashtanga Yoga: Meant for experienced practitioners, the more challenging Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga style comprises six series (Primary, Intermediate and four Advanced Series) each of which has a set order of poses. Each of the six series begins with Surya Namaskara (Sun Salutations) 5 of the A variation and 5 of the B variation, followed by the standing sequence.


  • Restorative Yoga: If one is looking for a form of yoga that calms the restless body and mind then Restorative yoga is the best option. It is a slow-moving practice where  postures are done slowly and some  held for a length of time. A number of yoga poses are shortlisted which are heart opening poses, those that release pent up tightness in key areas like shoulders, back and hips. This enables our body to tap into the parasympathetic nervous system and experience very deep  relaxation.
  • My form of yoga at ‘Yoga With Sapna’, includes elements of all the above yoga styles.

Daily Yoga Practice: Benefits it Promises.

Regular Yoga Practice is highly advantageous. To achieve this regularity a popular option I have noticed is  Online Yoga Classes For Weight Loss. A steady practice will keep sculpting the body into a fit shape as well as build strength and calmness. Here’s why:

  • The stimulation that our nerves and nervous connections receive via yoga postures, soothes the body systems, minimising the effect of stress and anxiety. Postures and breath work help effectively reduce blood pressure and boost immunity. The twists and bends thoroughly massage  internal organs and improve digestion. Further, weight gain is counteracted by inversions like shoulder stand where the thyroid gland is strongly stimulated. Meditation and pranayama ease  depression.


  • Enhanced stress levels in the body can lead to high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels etc. This can take a toll on our  cardiovascular system. Yoga postures give the heart a healthy workout and pranayama like alternate nostril breathing works like a strong tonic as it bolsters the steady natural heartbeat.


  • Yoga contributes to flexibility in our joints. It helps correct our posture so we don’t push incorrect weight on our joints, which would wear them out fast.  Yoga Teaches us how to align our spine correctly. Regular Yoga Practice assists in pain relief. Hence, it is a must-include option for people suffering from arthritis and chronic diseases.


Besides working on the physical level – alleviating pain and strengthening the musculature and skeletal structure, Yoga equally helps in strengthening the mind and relieving it of its tensions and turmoil. My yoga is an amalgam of many styles and my own life experiences – I call it ‘Yoga with Sapna’ and I  have formulated unique sequences of Vinyasa flows (available on YouTube) and also videos demonstrating and explaining facets of pranayamas, meditation and relaxation.
